Fodor's Review

In the Liberty Hotel—the former site of the infamous Charles Street Jail—this Beacon Hill hot spot has a prison-chic vibe, complete with barred windows and a sign on the wall reminding patrons that "crime doesn't pay." The restaurant's Italian fare, however, is anything but institutional: the house-made mozzarella bar, crusty pizzas, and handmade pastas (several gluten-free) are all exceptional. Take note of the King Crab Cocktail: thick slices of buffalo mozzarella cheese and slices of avocado mixed with warm buttery Alaskan King Crab and drizzled with green mustard oil. Chef Lydia Shire's creative menu is complemented by a sleek orange bar, curved white-leather booths, and one of the city's most beautiful crowds.
